I just went to make a bounty on a question I previously bountied and found that the minimum rep is now 100.
Please fix this back, so we can put up 50 rep bounties again. While I've put up larger bounties before, not all questions need that level.
Do you really think we weren't attracting enough attention with the 50 rep bounties?
EDIT: This is now a feature-request to remove the sad feature that Rebecca references that was just implemented, whereby when you bounty a question that you already bountied, it costs you double.
This will only squelch the main way that the community has to lobby for their feature-request/change.
While the main need to remove this is on Meta, there doesn't seem to be a good reason to implement this on SO either. The only way to abuse the 50 rep bounties, is to give a really good answer. So since the goal of the site is really good answers, is it really abuse?
